shiny, new cellar doors

They installed our new cellar doors in the front and back of the house yesterday. The one in the back has a custom goose neck (no more carbon monoxide in the cellar - yay!). Don't they look pretty?

We decided to go for the non-waterproof ones since we haven't had any water issues (and you saw what decrepit covers we had before) and because they were considerably more expensive. Plus I got the distinct feeling that the guy thought he could charge us anything he wanted thinking we wouldn't know the difference. Oh the joy of homeownership!

For those of you who don't have cellar doors of your own - they exist as a method of lowering items into and out of the cellar. When these houses were all built at the beginning of the 20th century they were rich vacation homes. This way the servants could bring in supplies without going through the house.
